We can’t get enough of period romance dramas right now, from Bridgerton to the upcoming Lady Chatterley’s Lover, and there’s a brand new show filling the hole in our hearts left by Lady Whistledown. We can’t get enough of period romance dramas right now, from Bridgerton to the upcoming Lady Chatterley’s Lover.
We are, in fact, discussing The Empress, the newest romantic comedy series produced by Netflix and set in the world of Austrian aristocracy. The first season was released on Netflix just this past week to an overwhelming response from fans, and many are already looking forward to a second season.
To review, Season 1 centered on the defiant Elisabeth, who, to her surprise, fell in love with Emperor Franz and found herself thrust into the complex and dangerous world of the Viennese court. Is there going to be a second season of The Empress? This is everything that we have learned up to this point.
Has The Empress Season 2 Been Confirmed?
Regrettably, the second season of The Empress has not yet been greenlit for production. Nevertheless, there is still time to announce an upgrade! It has just been a week since The Empress was released (on September 29), so it is still early days for any S2 developments.
Given the show’s popularity, there is a possibility that the streaming platform will want to continue the series’ success by producing a second installment. The Empress did fly immediately into the No. 2 slot in Netflix’s UK Top 10 when it was released, so this is a possibility. Keep everything crossed!
Who Could Star In Empress Season 2?
Before we can obtain the whole cast list for Season 2, we will need to wait for confirmation that the show will be renewed. However, we do anticipate that the main characters from Season 1 will be back. Therefore, Devrim Lingnau plays the role of Elisabeth von Wittelsbach, and Phillip Froissant takes on the role of Emperor Franz Joseph.
Melika Foroutan is playing the role of Sophia, Elisa Schlott is playing Helene, and Johannes Nussbaum is playing the role of Archduke Maximilian. In addition to that, it would be great if the show could welcome some fresh faces to the cast.
The Empress Season 2: What May Happen?
After a tough debate with Franz and Archduchess Sophia, Elisabeth decided that she would go back to her home in Bavaria. This was one of the major occurrences that took place toward the end of the first season.
Nonetheless, just before she is set to leave, she learns that she is expecting a child. Next, we see a protesting throng obstructing Elisabeth’s exit while she addresses the gathering and informs them that she is going to be a mother.
That leaves a tonne of questions for a possible second season, including the following: Will Elisabeth and Franz be able to mend their differences, and will she continue to live in Vienna? Let’s cross our fingers and hope that we find out.
The Empress Season 2 Release Date?
We are sorry to say that this is not the case just yet, but in the meanwhile, we will be on the watch for an announcement on season two. If S2 is indeed developed, we wouldn’t anticipate seeing its release until the latter half of 2023 at the earliest at this point. As a result, for the time being, we are going to continue to maintain a well-stocked watchlist of historical dramas.
